I have an Ender 3 converted to direct drive and I am confused about whether the 3D Chameleon you have for sale now acts like a free pass thru during active printing with the original extruder doing the work (the 3D Chameleon just handling switching the filaments) or the original extruder is removed and the 3D Chameleon extruder does the all the work. If it will work either way with different Gcodes which way would be better? I am thinking that removing the original extruder would be a cleaner install but I kind of like the direct drive because of less slop in the longer tube(s) without it.
Great, I just ordered one a few minutes ago. It's the Gcode that scares me, I use MatterControl as my slicer, since it uses the Cura engine I am hoping your Cura Gcodes will work with it.
Hi Mitch, It acts like a pass through when you're normally printing... that way, you can continue to use your normal printing profiles when not changing colors. It only grabs the filament when you want to remove it from your stock extruder and reloads the new color into the extruder... which then, it let's go again to allow normal extruder operation.
